THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
"Death cannot keep his Prey,
Jesus, my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus, my Lord!
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
HALLELUJAH! Christ arose!"
(Robert Lowry, 1874)
1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary
the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices,
that they might come and anoint him.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they
came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the
stone from the door of the sepulchre?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away:
for it was very great.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting
on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of
Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here:
behold the place where they laid him.
7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth
before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
Light from the Word.
On Good Friday, Jesus willingly and vicariously died for our sins.
But on Easter Sunday, the SON rose before sunrise!
Death could not hold Him!
The Tomb is EMPTY!!
The grave could not contain His power!
Even the devil and the sins of the whole world could not defeat Him!
Christ's resurrection signifies that after Jesus was crucified for my sin,
and yours, He ROSE AGAIN - conquering Satan, death and hell on
1 Tim 3:16 says,
"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels,
preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world,
(and) received up into glory."
For those who have surrendered to Him, Christ's resurrection also means
we HAVE His eternal LIFE!
(See John 1:12, Eph. 1:13)
Also,Titus 3:7 says,
"That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to
the hope of eternal life."
WE SHALL LIVE!!
And, today, because of this tremendous truth, we have "life more abundantly!"
We can celebrate every day because we KNOW that Jesus is:
"the resurrection and the life!" (John 11:25)
AND, because He lives, we live!
"And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." (John 11:26)
Can you say in your heart,
"I KNOW my Redeemer liveth?!" AND,
"I shall SEE Him for myself?!"
If you can, then you can sing with me:
"HALLELUJAH! Christ AROSE!!"
